A toolkit for phase-based feature detection
This toolkit consists of a set of functions which use information contained within the phase of a Fourier-transformed image to detect localised features such as edges, blobs and corners. These methods have the key advantage that the properties they measure are invariant with respect to image brightness and contrast.

Fast(er) Fourier Transforms
All of the functions in this module make use of the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), and their speed significantly depends on the module used to provide FFT functions. If it is available, the pyFFTW module will be used. This provides Python bindings to the FFTW C library, and is substantially faster than fftpack, the default for scipy.
To install pyFFTW:
$ pip install pyfftw
